  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in sausage. Cook and stir until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl; stir in milk, salt, and mustard. Fold bread cubes, Cheddar cheese, and sausage into egg mixture. Pour into a lightly greased 7x11-inch baking dish. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

After all the wonderful reviews, I was surprised to find that I really didn't care for the overall dish. All the flavors were certainly there, but the "crust" was a little funky.

Not a bad egg and sausage casserole however I wish I had put some veggies like onion, garlic, and maybe spinach to give it more variety. I would also recommend using breakfast sausage with herb ...

Great recipe! I've used this one for years. We messed up one year and bought maple sausage instead of plain and have been using maple since!

It was easy and delicious. I even cheated - I made it in the morning so it didn't get the night of soaking. We still enjoyed it and cooked up great.

This is a good casserole! I have made it twice. The first time I refrigerated it overnight before cooking. The second time, I let the egg, cheese, and milk mixture set while I fried the sausage....

I added pieces of bread to cover the bottom of dish which soaked up the milk mixture. This added volume to the casserole.

I was asked to make a brunch featuring this casserole because my friends love this dish. However, to help with calories, I use pre-cooked turkey sausage. I also enjoy adding sautéed crimini mu...

Had the grandkids help fix this for a holiday brunch-they loved fixing & eating it the next morning! Very easy!
